Hope as defined by C.R. Snyder (1994), is the belief that one can determine pathways to desired goals and develop the agency or persistence to access pathways. Instilling a sense of hope in both students and educators helps support a positive school environment.
This workshop will engage participants in the research supporting hope theory as it applies to their personal and professional lives. Additionally, participants will learn about strategies they can use for creating a hopeful classroom and school.
